Scholarships: Academic Merit Awards
Academic Merit Awards recognize CMU students who show interest and passion in the commitments that are highlighted in CMU's mission and vision. These include:
- Educating for peace-justice
- Learning through thinking and doing
- Generous hospitality through an invitational community and dialogue
Each year up to four Academic Merit Awards (maximum value $4,000; $1,000 per year up to four years) are awarded to students entering CMU. In order to qualify for the award, students must submit an Academic Merit Award Application Form, a 500 word essay answering one of three questions listed on the Application Form, along with one letter of nomination.
These Awards may be awarded in addition to the Academic Scholarships and are renewable for three additional years.
Application deadline for Academic Merit Awards is February 28.
